Position/philosophy statement Terry’s focus is on creating a better future by fighting and advocating for our children, investing in our infrastructure & economic growth.
I believe that we must have a tax policy that benefits everyone. The 2013 law that changed the tax code has negatively impacted those whose wages are not sufficient enough for the current standard of living. We need to revisit that law and adjust it so these workers and families are no longer carrying the burden. We also need to turn a critical eye to our corporate tax rate, while I want to continue to recruit high quality companies and jobs to North Carolina we cannot do so at the expense of much needed corporate tax revenue.
Absolutely. As an attorney I believe we need to think critically about public safety and our justice system. While the local police departments is a city and state issues, as a legislator we need to work on meaningful criminal justice reform in our state. We must allow municipalities to have increased oversight over law enforcement and ensure that any law enforcement official that is discharged from their position in one department is permanently barred from working for any law enforcement agency in the state. We must fully fund our family and drug treatment courts and increase funding for diversion programs for youthful offenders in order to keep them out of detention centers and the prison pipeline. Also, it is past time to end cash for bail programs. We also need to level the playing field by raising the minimum wage, enacting paid family leave, bringing back the earned income tax credit and adding entrepreneurship training programs.
